Migrant heritage in Fitzroy

Repost from 2014 : #crazyhouse, 3 Westgarth Street, #fitzroy.Probably a 1960s #renovation of a #terracehouse by an italian immigrant concreter but who knows ? Looks like made of leftovers from an office block or shopping centre. Definitely #featurism as #robinboyd would say. I love it. 2021: still there, now a share house.

Ex North Fitzroy Police Station

Repost 2015 (!) : Surprised to learn recently that this was not just a stylish block of #artdecoflats in #alfredcrescent #northfitzroy but was originally built late 30s as a #policestation, and designed by my favourite architect #percyeverett, chief architect of the #publicworksdepartment!
